“Brand owners know that sustainability is critically important to today’s consumers,” said Gary Andrzejewski, corporate vice president, environmental affairs, Sun Chemical. “Consumers want brands to partner with suppliers and companies that are equally focused on eco-efficiency in their products during all stages of production, from manufacturing to distribution. Sun Chemical is committed to ensuring the sustainability of its own products by increasing bio-renewable content in our products, improving plant recyclability, and reducing waste.”
